Default Trading as a Living

Hi Members

I utilize Ninjatrader exclusively for both mechanical and discretionary paper trading and would please appreciate any links or information from members on what route produces the likelihood of successful traders who trade as a living.

I am a 20 year veteran as a stockbroker and would like to trade as a living. I’ve been searching the net and have found very good info but really nothing that provides a road map so to speak.

I'm not sure if utilizing and working with a NT support partner is a good start or perhaps join a prop firm?

Please, I understand this question has a many different answers. I'm simply looking to obtain sound advice in the basics of trading direction. Questions such as which markets are the best to trade, money management, bid/ask spread on various exchanges, recommendations to only watch price charts are topics I've read in the past.

Appreciate any links or advice.

Thank you for your time.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
